Our Film „Kinshasa Symphony“ has World Premiere at „Berlinale-Special“ 18 February 2010 at 09:45 pm in Cinema Paris (next screening. 18.2.2010 at 06 pm Cubix 8)Berlin

– The decision has been taken. The film “Kinshasa Symphony” has convinced the jury of the 60th Berlin International Film Festival “Berlinale”. Festival director Dieter Kosslick congratulates the directors on this “great documentary film about this very special way towards Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. The film and its story have touched our hearts…” The premiere will take place at Cinema Paris. I can't wait to show our work from the last month. It's never done and we allways hear what we could have been better. On my part the sound recording, design and sound mix in dolby Digital 5.1 was hard work but it was worth going into in honnour to this hard working orchestra OSK. The directors Claus Wischmann and Martin Baer are enthusiastic that their film about the only symphony orchestra in central Africa - the “Orchestre Symphonique Kimbanguiste” – has its world premiere at such a famous international festival as the “Berlinale”. “We couldn’t have dreamed of a better starting point”, states Claus Wischmann. He is convinced that later on the film will also have a broad audience in the cinemas and eventually on television (coproduction with WDR and RBB). The film has been produced under the patronage of the German Commission for UNESCO. From May/June 2010 onwards it will be shown in cinemas all over Germany.
